Prayer: Pondering Lent
St. Benedict said in his Rule: "A monastic's life should be a perpetual Lent." (Rule of St. Benedict, chapter 49) What would that be like? I suppose it depends on what you think Lent is *for*. A Carthusian monk wrote:
"Our 'fast'…consists only in removing the obstacles to our profound conformation to Christ." (From Advent to Pentecost: Carthusian Novice Comferences) Pray today for God to remove those obstacles.
